Summary

In the sequel to Alpha Wolf's Pet, Hidden, Mia has two choices: remain hidden from the Russian mob determined to murder her, or become a sworn member of Dominic's werewolf pack. Being Dominic's human lover is pleasurable while taxing. She wants more commitment than he can give. Except werewolves never marry humans. Carnal desires aside, will she accept her status within the pack in order to share what little time she has with Dominic until he takes a werewolf mate?

Dominic is torn. If he gives Mia beta status, his pack will mutiny. If he doesn't, she'll leave. Her stubborn independent nature will turn his world of strict pack rules upside down. He loves her, but his pack rules will never allow him to claim a human as his mate. Worse, he's drawn to Mia's addictive blood. Was one taste too much?

Despite breaking the witness protection rules and looming danger, Mia is determined to visit her ailing grandmother. Can Dominic protect her from the mob, as well as from his kind? As their passion reaches a fevered pitch, will circumstances crush their happiness?

Enjoyable!!

Kept is an excellent followup to the first book on the Alpha Wolf's Pet trilogy. We get to learn about the wolf-shifter culture and how the dynamics in the pack work. Mia has to learn a lot and change her human behaviour and perceptions to be accepted by the pack. Dominic tries his best to manage both Mia and the pack. The situation is not easy on the couple, to make it work, they both have to do their part.

I wish the narrator hadn't changed. Augusta Rivers's performance is excellent, other than the fact she pronounces wolf as "woff" after a while gets really annoying. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Not really my thing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm not sure it was time well spent. If I'd been reading the book I would have skipped or speed read to get to the end, but you can't do that with an audio book.

If you’ve listened to books by Eva Gordon before, how does this one compare?

This is the second of Eva's books I have listened to. I wasn't entirely convinced by the first one, and unfortunately this one was less convincing. The whole shifter culture revolves around humans as a lesser species with almost no rights; it is brutal and far too formal for me, and I'm not into BDSM either. The heroine, Mia, is a mix of petulant child and reasonable adult, so I kept liking then disliking her through the book. The hero (Dominic, the alpha wolf) seems inconsistent and unreliable to me. At one point he forced Mia to get naked in front of the pack (a big no no for starters). He told her he wouldn't let anyone else touch her, but she is groped by Oak, another wolf - it just annoyed the heck out of me.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Augusta Rivers?

No, I don't think so. Her accent is grating. She pronounces wolf as "woof" and wolves as "woofs" - no small issue in a book about wolf shifters! She s unable to pronounce foliage at all - she says "foilage" - they spend a lot of tie in the woods, so again, this was irritating.

Was Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept worth the listening time?

No, I don't think so. Just not really my thing.

Review

After listening to the first part of this series I could hardly wait to start this second one. I am enjoying it so much it is a brilliant story. Mia and Dominic are very much in love but it seems doomed to me. The authors way with words and the narrator's skills do a masterly job at pulling at my heartstrings. I feel so sad that pack law will probably end up breaking their hearts if a miracle does not happen. As in the first part, the underlying story of Mia being in hiding from the mob continues to be very exciting. There is everything to love about this series I would rate it a must read if you follow this genre.

Werewolves, Mobsters and Mother-in-laws...OH MY!!

What did you love best about Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept?

The interactions Mia had with each of the pack members was interesting. Each one was unique and well defined. I like that the origins of the werewolf world is so different from other stories. Mia's struggle with pack society is a curious dynamic. Almost like going back to high school as an adult in my nightmares!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept?

Without giving any spoilers....2 wordsPanty Sniffer

Which scene was your favorite?

When Mia meets Mommy's mate pick for her son.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I DID!!

Any additional comments?

Augusta Rivers did an ok job of narrating, but Megan Kelly from book 1 is my preference.
I received this in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Preferred reader of 1st volume

Hard to stay invested in the narration, as the narrator changed between volumes. Will have to listen to again.

Kept (Listing)

Well, no surprise: I liked this to! To bad it has a not so good narrator as the last one. Augusta Rivers is no Meghan Kelly! Acutely really far from it! The book suffers for it too, not only am i still liking the story. I am loving it. Eva Gordon is still keeping it HOT. That is why i am a bit sad about Augusta Rivers made me rethink if i liked this type of books.

I would give Augusta Rivers 2, 5 if that was possible. Good that Eva Gordon keeps it going steady at a 4,6 all out of 5. The story gets more meat (No pun intended) and i cant WAIT to next book! So i want to say: Loved the book, not the narrator.... I think that was pretty clear!

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author

Good continuation of first book

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

I was so glad to see another narrator used from the first book. I will say that the first two narrators were light years ahead of the narrator used for the third book! I couldn’t even finish one chapter of that one.

I started this book immediately after the first and was happy with how the story and main characters were progressing. Heroine was still being stupid and disrespectful, alpha kept his cool and patience with her.

I think these books would have been better with a male narrator IMO. And unfortunately I won’t ever hear the conclusion due to the ridiculous narrator used for the third book. So my advice would be to sample all 3 audios before getting invested in the story.

Great addition to the series.

This book took off where the first book finished.
Mia is still learning the ropes of being Dominic pet.
Dom is sent on a job which brings his mother into Dom’s
home and she sends Mia away.
Mia went and saw her Gram for the last time.
She gets court by the Russian mob
Will Dom get there in time to save his pet.
Great plot and plenty of action of all kinds.
Be aware it finishes on a bit of a cliffhanger.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Mia & Dominic's Story Continues

This is book two of this series and you should read book one, Hidden first as the story continues to unfold throughout. I must admit that I find it somewhat difficult to firmly make up my mind about this series. I like the lead characters (Mia and Dominic) well enough and the chemistry that they share. The intimate scenes are kinky and very steamy. I loved the intense "MINE" feelings that Dominic had about Mia being his mate. Also, the author has created some unique twists to the typical werewolf shifter story that I find intriguing. On the other hand, I find the shortsightedness of both characters so incredibly frustrating. They insist on either glossing over or totally ignoring huge issues that stand between them and what seems any chance of their relationship's or even their own survival. For me, this is a giant issue. This is not a fairytale and we are not all naïve children that believe love can fix anything. Lastly we come to the whole "Pet" element of this story. Maybe I would feel more positive about it if I thought that MIa had made a completely informed decision when agreeing to it, but I don't. Even after book two she still doesn't know all the details and that really, really bothers me. The narrator does a good job but as I said in my review of book one, considering the ratio of male to female characters, I think it would have been a better choice to use a single male narrator and ideally one of each.

Great story and addictive characters.

This is a wonderful story, and the interplay between the different characters is fantastic. I became attached to not only the main characters, but the characters surrounding them as well.

Mother's Visit

This story is the continuance of Alpha's Pet: Hidden. There's a lot of twists and turns in this story and I feel like Mia is figuring out who she is and what she wants. If you enjoyed the naughty parts in the last book, you will certainly enjoy this one.
